Please support House Bill 684 for seizure recognition and first aid in our schools. It is important to me that 47,200 Texas children have the safest environment possible.

I understand House Bill 684 has been filed this session to train public school personnel in seizure awareness and first aid. It is called Sam's Law.
You may be surprised to learn that there are 47,200 children in Texas that have epilepsy and seizures. This is a large number of children and I am alarmed by this number. Many of our schools are not properly trained in seizure recognition and first aid. Seizures have the potential to be harmful and even fatal, so first aid training is very important and potentially lifesaving.
I urge you to support Sam's Law for the safety of our Texas students.
